Bouquet - is it really necessary?

Recommended Posts

so my brother is going to be my man of honor and i won't have any other bridesmaids, etc. i don't want to make him hold the flowers and i've heard that i can't bring them home from mexico anyway. which means i'm thinking about going without a bouquet. would this be strange? is there any other good reason to have one? it seems like just one more thing to worry about but maybe i'm missing something...?

I think having a bouquet made me feel more bridal, but no I don't think you HAVE to have one, nor would it be weird if you didn't and I certainly wouldn't think your brother would want one, but you could give him a flower for his shirt.

No you don't need one, but IMO I couldn't imagine getting married without one. I didn't have anyone standing up at our wedding, so during the ceremony I set my bouquet on the table that the judge stood behind.

I personally want to carry a bouquet, when else will I get to in my life, never, and I love flowers. I do not think it would be weird if you did not have one, but really think about it, I would hate for you to miss out on something like that. I think your brother just needs a bout, and that is all, he should not carry a bouquet. lol

I like what Tammy said in that you can just set them down or maybe have you mom hold them if she is sitting/standing right in front. The other option , if you truely don't want flowers, would be to carry a wonderful hand bag so you have something to do with your hands. That you could also set down or hand off. I love that your brother is standing up with you.

You mean hold the flowers when you need your hands free right? Not, walk down the aisle holding a bouquet. I think you could just set it down. But, you don't need one. They come free with a lot of wedding packages though, so I think it's worth having.

it's all about personal decision - you don't HAVE to do anything on your wedding day! you could wear a pair of old jeans and a tank top, no makeup, and you could still get married ... anywhere! it's all about how YOU want your day to be. with that said, if you want a bouquet, get one! if not, don't. if you're just worried about logistics, i just set mine on the table as well when i needed my hands (i had no attendants). personally, i wanted a bouquet (and it did come w/my package) - so i got one. but if i didn't want one - i don't think anyone would have even noticed.

I agree - bouquet is not necessary but I LOVED mine! You could always do one of those pretty pomander balls...that was you can let in hang on your wrist while you're busy w/ rings and such.

 

Here's an example with hydrandgeas - though I've seen them with other types of flowers as well. Roses are really pretty like this.

 

It's on page 3, the first one on the 2nd row ( sorry I could't make it easier to find! lol!)

Good idea, then no one has to hold it, it will just hang on your wrist, I think that would be really pretty.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
